Return to Exile by Lynne Gentry
The Carthage Chronicles #2
Synopsis: How far would you go to save the ones you love?
Six years ago, impossible circumstances forced Dr. Lisbeth Hastings to leave behind the love of her life, not just in another country, but in another time. Her work as a top-notch epidemiologist and parenting her little girl helps alleviate the pain, but at night when her exhausted head hits the pillow, images of her beloved Cyprian haunt her sleep.
Cyprian Thascius returns from political exile a broken man. He's lost his faith, the love of his life, and his purpose. He attempts to move on, to face the danger that is looming over Carthage, but when Cyprian's true love suddenly reappears, his heart becomes as imperiled as the fledgling church he seeks to save.
Have the years that kept Lisbeth and Cyprian apart created too wide a chasm to bridge? In the midst of a new epidemic and rising oppression, will their love be the most costly fatality? Filled with gripping action and raw emotion, this spell-binding adventure of star-crossed lovers captivates with every turn of the page in this electric continuation of The Carthage Chronicles.

My review: This being the first book I have read by Lynne I have to say I really enjoyed it. I did not read the first one in this series and did just fine with this book, but I will now be purchasing the first one to read. One of the things that drew me to this book was that it was a time travel book and a historical fiction book all rolled into one. I love both types of books. Lynne did a good job with the character development as well as the descriptions for the settings. I felt as if I was a part of this story. She also did a good job with the medical aspect of this book, you can tell she did her research. I felt bad for Lisbeth having to make a choice between helping her sick daughter by going back to the future or staying with the man she loves. There is romance, drama, adventure and a few plot twists which help keep the story moving along. I look forward to more books by Lynne. I recommend this books to anyone who likes historical fiction, time travel, Christian fiction or romance books.
